#ReleaseTheRate Changes to Kindle Unlimited

Hey, everyone! Take a seat, close the door. We need to talk.

Amazon subscription’s service Kindle Unlimited has been out for a year. The way it works, as many of you know already, is that for a monthly fee you were allowed to borrow any book enrolled in the program for free.

Us authors were paid a flat fee for each borrowed book read past the 10% mark. However, we never knew in advance how much that fee was going to be. It depended on how many borrows there were in total throughout the KU program and the pool of money was split accordingly. In the beginning, we were getting paid around $2 for each borrow and this then dwindled to around $1.30.

And now everything is changing drastically.

Kindle Unlimited

Amazon changed its business model as of July 1, 2015. Authors will no longer be paid for a borrowed book but rather for pages read. How much? About $.0057 cents per page read.

That’s right, half a cent a page.

First of all, this is this incredibly unfair. They’re asking authors to provide content without any guarantee of getting paid. If you go to the restaurant and order a dish, do you get to avoid paying when you only eat half of it? Of course not.

Secondly, Amazon refuses to tell us how much each page will net the author in future months, which is incredibly underhanded. How would you feel if you were hired for a job and you wouldn’t know until 45 days later how much you’ll be paid? This could mean a 80-90% drop in income.

So what does it mean for you?

Many authors are removing their books from the Kindle Unlimited program. Me? I’m not certain yet. I want to wait until the end of the summer to see how things shake out.

However, there may come a time when I have no choice but to pull out of KU. It might mean fewer releases. It might mean releasing a bundle per month instead. I don’t know yet.

I’m truly sorry if Kindle Unlimited was your preferred method to read my books.

#ReleaseTheRate

Here’s what YOU can do to help!

While I’m still enrolled in KU, if you borrow one of my books please read all the way to the very end. With your device connected (or syncing) to the Internet, Amazon will know how many pages you’ve read and I’ll get a few pennies more.

Do you want to participate and help improve the system? First, share this blog post on Twitter and Facebook. Next, you can write to Amazon’s Jeff Bezos by clicking here or emailing at jeff@amazon.com

Tell him that it’s not too much to ask, that Kindle Unlimited needs to change. Amazon needs to tell authors how much they are going to pay them for their work and how many of their books are being read, at what completion rate. Under the previous program this data was available but it’s not anymore. This is vital if you want your favorite authors to continue to offer free books through Kindle Unlimited.

Thanks for bearing with my rant! Have a great holiday weekend and come back next week for a brand-new story you won’t want to pass up :-)

Beautiful Casey Cornell was once an up-and-coming actress but her career fell apart. Things take a turn when Porter Gates, the world’s biggest movie star, notices her at a party and invites her to travel with him.

But then comes the mysterious contract he wants her to sign. What secret does he keep from the world? Does it have anything to do with his taboo sex life?

“I didn’t wake you, did I?”

“Uh no. Who’s this?”

“Oh, I’m sorry. It’s Porter. I hope you don’t mind me calling. I had my people hunt down your number, forgot to ask for it earlier. You’re not mad, are you?”

“Mad that the biggest movie star in the world is calling me on my personal phone? Of course not.”

Oh crap, had I just said that out loud? I was mortified but it made him laugh.

“Good to hear, Casey. Although I’m not entirely sure if you were serious or sarcastic.”

“Sometimes I don’t even know myself.”

He chuckled again. “Even better. I’m calling you for two reasons. First of all, I wanted to tell you that I had a great time meeting you tonight.”

“Oh. Do you do that with everyone? Did you call the president of Universal Studios right before me?”

“No but she’s right after you on my call sheet. Seriously, it’s been a long time since I felt comfortable talking with someone, just talking about stupid crap and not feeling stressed about it or like I’m putting on an act.”

“Hmmm… I… T-Thank you, I guess. It was great to meet you as well, Porter.”

“I’m really happy to hear you say that. Which brings me to the second thing. It’s gonna sound pretty crazy so you have to brace yourself.”

“Ooo-kay…”

“What are you doing next weekend?”

Cleaning the apartment didn’t seem like a worthy answer so instead I said, “Not much, why?”

“We’re doing a movie premiere in Tokyo. Same movie, different crowd. I was hoping you’d want to come with me.”

“To Tokyo? Tokyo, Massachusetts?”

“Tokyo, Japan. I know this is last minute and it’s gonna be a total bore, but maybe we can be bored together. What do you think? Like I said, it’s been a while since I’ve been comfortable just hanging out with someone. I’m asking you and you can say no but I really hope you’ll say yes instead.” After a moment he added, “Casey?”

I wanted to reply but my voice had disappeared from complete and utter shock.

Once a prominent New York family, the Lenhardts are now feeling the effects of the Great Depression. It’s 1930 and Theodore’s only source of employment comes from bootleggers.

And the mob has the offer of a lifetime for him: if daughter Georgina and her adopted mother put on a sex show for some VIPs, they will be provided for all their lives.

Mary never thought she would have so much fun playing with her daughter in public. She certainly never thought it would turn into an all-out orgy!


—-

How could they have fallen so low that they had to resort to selling their bodies in order to ensure their survival? It was a hefty blow to the ego.

On the other hand, she was the first to admit they weren’t a conventional family. It had been a difficult time when they had discovered that Georgina had slept with her brother, that they had conceived a child together, but this was behind them.

Mary was even on board with the idea of Georgina sleeping with Theodore, she had been ever since she had found them in bed together. It took a few weeks for everyone to stop feeling embarrassed but everything had changed when Mary had wholeheartedly invited her daughter to share her husband.

To be absolutely honest with herself, it aroused her like nothing else. The nights where Theodore took both women at once were the best Mary had ever known. She was thrilled beyond words when she played with herself as she watched Theodore plow into their 22-year-old daughter. It was a most precious bond.

Every time they did this, which was more and more frequent, Mary wanted to go one step further and introduce her daughter to the joys of sapphic lovemaking. Yet, she never found the courage to cross that line for fear that she would be rejected.

She was rather certain that Georgina wanted to do this as well but she wasn’t yet willing to risk her daughter’s love for it.

Nonetheless, this might be the opportunity to make her wildest dreams come true!

Of course, this came with the caveat that it would happen in front of a roomful of strangers, that some men would have sex with them too. Was it worth it?

The crash of 1929 was terrible for Georgina and her family. They used to be among New York’s most prominent socialites and now they have lost everything. Having given birth to her own brother’s baby is the least of her worries now.

When Georgina learns that her adopted father may be leaving them in favor of the criminal underworld just to make ends meet, she gets desperate.

She offers her body to him to show how much she’s willing to sacrifice for daddy to stay with her!

“You were really jealous of Clyde? You wanted to be with me as I was with my brother?”

“I shouldn’t have said anything, this is wrong, sweetheart. Please forgive me.”

He held his breath as he waited for her to speak. What was troubling was that his member was still rock-hard, digging into Georgina’s thigh, and she made no move to leave the comfort of his arms. Shouldn’t she be running away?

“There’s nothing to forgive, daddy.”

“But I’ve just made a terrible confession. Surely you can’t accept what I just told you.”

She smirked for the first time. “This explains so much.”

“It does?”

“I’ve seen the way you’ve been looking at me.”

“I’m so sorry.”

Her head shot up. “Don’t be!”

“But you understand what I said, right?”

“That you were jealous of my brother for sleeping with me? Yes, I understand.”

Theodore’s mouth went dry. “And you’re not appalled?”

“No,” she said. “Not at all. Since Clyde left I’ve been thinking about you too, daddy. I don’t know what it is with the men in this family but I get these urges…”

Georgina is 18, making her debut in New York’s high society of the 1920s. When she gets a little tipsy, she retires upstairs to rest and that’s when she witnesses a couple having sex.

This awakens something within her and it only intensifies when her brother comes to check up on her. She finds herself eager to lose her virginity to him even though it’s TABOO…

Even at the risk of a FORBIDDEN pregnancy!


—-

“You never had a cum before, ever?”

“No.”

“Kicking the beam is what happens when the pleasure gets so intense, you just lose your mind, control of your body. It’s really neat.”

Georgina nodded, intrigued and yet not wanting to appear desperate by asking too many questions.

“You know you get wet when you get excited, right? So did it happen when you were rubbing yourself earlier?”

The young girl felt strange talking about this with her own brother but at the same time she wanted it to continue. It stoked the fire which had been lit before upon finding the couple. After a while, she nodded.

“Can I see, little sister?”

He once again put a hand on her shoulder while his other hand went to her knee. It wasn’t insistent but his presence was inescapable.

“No, I won’t show you.”

“It’s okay, we won’t do anything you don’t want to.”

She looked up at him, her eyes wide, pleading. “I want… I want…”

“Tell me, Georgina. I’ll do anything for you.”

“It makes me feel like… kissing.”

“Will you let me?”

After she nodded his lips were on hers. She inhaled deeply, filled up at once with joy and emotions. It was wrong to be doing this with her brother, that much she knew, but she figured no one would ever know.

Discovering Gems: exploring the boundaries

My Nearly ManHere’s another one of my recent discoveries for my “discovering gems” occasional feature.

My Nearly Man: Confessions of a BBW Hotwife #1 by Sadie Somerton

I picked up this short story because I wanted something out of the ordinary. Nothing gets my motor going like taboo, you know that already, but I’ll read just about anything.

What attracted me to this story was that it featured kinks I’m not really familiar with, like cuckoldry and BBW.

The story is about Lucy and she gets the urge to look outside her marriage for sexual fulfillment. The thing is that her husband is on board with the idea because it turns him on! Well, let me tell you that this turned me on as well 😉 It’s really well-written and that Bradley? OMG so yummy…
